Talk about having blinders on......

History is full of displacements and migrations.

can you point out which posts in particular in this thread attack israel? or are poster just questioning israels actions that make you think they are being attacked?

Umm - Hit me up side the head & call me corn bread, BUT don't we have to be at odds with Isreal for the antichrist to rise & sign the peace treaty with Isreal that marks the sign of his reign? I'm just asking & maybe my teaching was wrong, but that's what I was taught. I'm a believer, I pray for Isreal, and I see the signs, but didn't Jesus tell us to think these things not strange for the hour draws near? Personally when I think of rapture, and fullfilment - I'm like okay Lord - you spoke it in your word. Your will be done.

Absolutely! We've said it time and time again...EVERYTHING that you desire, need, want to know about what's coming next, it's all in there people! ALL of it! The hours is near....even at the door! What is it, YOU just "can't believe it's happening in YOUR lifetime? Never thought YOU would live to see these days? REJOICE!! Count it all joy! We're almost there I tell you!!

It's time to get busy people! Let's put aside me, and you for a moment and help bring em in!! Get out your trumpets.....sound the alarm! God will do the sorting out, amen?

Scum of the devil worshipers? That's pretty low.

Or maybe it was a procedural or mechanical failure?

I'm reporting to you that I need to report this post. But it's not about what I need - so I'm not going to report it.

BTW - you forgot one. Solar activity is flaring up because Al "global warming" Gore had an affair.

I am sick and tired of the US taxpayer being fleeced to support the murder of Palestinian children, or their parents, or their grandparents.

And I really hate to burst your bubble, but you don't have the final answer. You have a passage from a book, a book of fables and urban legend, tainted by the men that wrote it, and edited an untold number of times.

Christians are "editing" history books in Texas today, do you really believe that your book hasn't been so polluted with the delusions of people with agendas over the centuries?
I have to say, what Texas is doing to textbooks is ridiculous. And I agree - I'm tired of supporting Israel. They are the only ones in the middle east who are allowed to have as many nukes as they want with no pressure from the community of nations to declare what they have. It's a huge double standard. The State of Israel is largely secular with many "Atheist/Jews" which is an oxymoron (IMO). Judaism is a religion, not a race. And the people in Israel are not elusively SEMITES. Many Muslims are also SEMITES.

Exactly. To question Israel in any way is always described as an ATTACK or as ANTI-SEMITISM by default. It's completely irrational.
